School Health Inspections

Starting September 2024, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has tasked Adams County Health Department with conducting regular inspections of public and private schools.

Within Adams County, we currently work with schools for inspections of cafeterias, pools, before and after care programs, and licensed early childhood education programs. You can expect our same inspection staff to conduct these new health and safety checks beginning fall of 2024. As always, our team will work to make sure you have the resources you need for a successful school inspection.

Over the next several months, we’ll be working with CDPHE to better understand the inspection requirements. We look forward to working with you and will continue to provide more details as the inspection program is rolled out. Check out our webinar series on the inspection process for low and high-risk inspections to help you prepare:
